Wow...we just had a really good one here. Biggest one I've felt yet...thought I might have to get downstairs cause everything was moving. Initial reports are a 5.9, but it felt stronger than that here.

More of a rolling and side-to-side motion here -- not terribly intense. Glad my daughters didn't feel it...

@Blackrose MD1: the map shows it was not too far from the Salton Sea, so you would have felt it much more there than here.

It's been downgraded to a 5.4. Sure seemed stronger than that.

I felt it here on the AZ / Calif border. Rolling / shaking motion for about 1 minute

Yep that one wasn't bad, woke me up a lil I guess. I agree Doc, rolling motion and pretty long, close to a minute. On to the next one....

It was the worst one here (Escondido) in the last few years by far.

Could see the house shaking and everything inside ratttled loudly.

THe weirdest thing about it was it came with it's own surround sound! A large dull roar, Both "hits". I don't ever remember hearding a quake before accopanied by it's own sound before.

One of the advantages to living in a high rise, I guess...get to feel the swaying a little more.

What's the over/under on another 5.0+ in the next week?

Yep, felt that one sitting in my chair.

Think I'll start placing bets on them.

I remeber a couple of years ago one hit while I was at work and I thought that a train was passing by outside (and there are train tracks literally across the street from my office)

Earthquake in Northern California
I was awoken by a significant earthquake at 3:20AM this morning. It was a pretty good rolling, then a few strong jolts, maybe 15 seconds. No damage here, just an exciting ride. But based on the strength, and not knowing where the epicenter was, it occurred to me it could be a bad quake somewhere if...

Oklahoma Earthquake?
I was quite surprised that ~20 minutes ago, that my apartment started shaking for a few moments. While some Californians would find this too common to comment, it is very rare here. I have NEVER felt an earthquake here before, even though Googling, I found that there are a few minor earthquakes...
